Flo, a peculiar pelican, and her companion Eddy, a crazy cormorant, fly together on their annual migration. While playing around, they’re thrown off course and end up on a mountaintop. Flo gets them back on track by using the natural flow of water as a map, traveling downstream from mountain watersheds to the ocean!

The water takes the pair from glaciers to rivers, into lakes and downstream to the waters that flow into the plains. They visit canals, wetlands, marshes, lakes and ponds. The streams flow all the way to the ocean, and Flo and Eddy reach their winter destination.
